Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

I was getting the beginning signs of this on my 05 but no rust just worn paint. To my luck, you could say, i got in to a car accident not of my own fault and to blend the paint they sanded and re painted the entire lift gate so its perfect again.

i also had slight rust at the corners of the lift gate handle at each end. That is also fixed now.

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

Today I phoned the Jeep dealership as they themselves did not phone as promised, they have refused to cover the issue under the warranty as i cannot prove if it is rusting from the inside out or the outside in!! Have contacted the customer care dept. to raise the issue. I now have to wait at least 25hrs for the result.
Very angry!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

Russ,
I'm in King's Lynn Norfolk the main dealer is Marshalls Peterborough.
did you have a reference number i could quote?
My next step if they refuse will be trading standards.
I need it fixed as I intend to sell it.
cheers Andy

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

Hi Andy

Not to far away from you then, I'm in Lincolnshire near Boston.
I used the dealer where I bought it from in North Yorkshire John Gill. (used to live near there)
They didn't give me any reference number, just quick look at it took some photos and booked me in.
I think they are trusted to self cert some warranty work without prior authorisation from Jeep.

I have just ordered some parts to complete a transmission fluid change from Marshalls, dipstick tool, oil, gasket and filter so hopefully that will go ok.

Russ

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

Same problem 2007 WH CRD, chrysler doesn't warrent the claim, its standing water under the liftgate which is actually a design flaw..., goodwill from my dealer gave my a touch up paintjob, didn't last long, within 6 months the rusting started again(even with loads of wax on it :-( ), ......... build quality????

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

faulty paintwork? or am i just being unreasonable.
i didnt buy it from the main dealer it was a private sale, so i can understand them not wanting to know, but jeep should be sorting it.

A few of the photos i have taken, what do you think??








Apologies photo are so big, not sure how to make them smaller

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

The rust spots next to the rear window rubber are in the same place as mine were.
They look as if they're bubbling up from underneath and some of the paint hasn't even broken yet! I can't see how they can refuse your claim.

The other rust spots look like they could be due to damaged paint and it may be hard to prove faulty paintwork as the cause.

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

I agree...I also think you've got an issue around your wiper motor cover...looks its rusted all around the plastic.

Do you have a written warranty? Is it Jeep's original warranty? I didn't know they had one that lasted that long for paint!

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

thanks for the photos, I had assumed the rust was caused by the glass rubbing through the paint, but it doesn't look like the rust is caused by being scuffed away, looks like its coming up from underneath.

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

Well surprise, surprise Jeep are keeping up their dreadful customer service by not calling me back when they say they will.
The sooner it is sorted out the sooner it can be sold and I will never have to deal with them again. I just hope other Jeep owners are getting better treatment.
Lovely car, s**t backup!
